Then they need competition. If they won’t encourage it themselves, it must be done for them.

There is a ton of competition on the internet.  From reading, Delphi has competitors that are "any subject" and hundreds of specialized subject competitors.  The GSD  forum is an example.

What companies do you think need to be forced to have competitors?  

 

 

Youtube does have competition, albeit inferior competition in Vimeo (targeted at professionals) Dailymotion (targeted to time wasters) and TikTok (ten second internet sitcoms). In the case of Youtube, capitalism has clearly worked, one business model clearly rides above the rest with an enduring quality about it that retains it's market share.

nothing will change that other than abolishing those corporations or removing the powers they have to circumvent the people's desires to post what ever they want.

I hear the Russians have a whole bunch of botnets for rent. And there are talented hacktivists. If some enterprising folk were to, say, unleash an effective attack on their servers to the point that irrepairable damage is done, and their whole thing is disrupted for a very, very long time, then would that level the playing field?

But more realistically, the Big Tech platforms can be brought down by attrition. People abandon the platform, and nibble away at it with assorted asymmetrical warfare. Throughout history, many vastly better financed and equipped superpowers have been eventually defeated by peoples who refused to ever submit, even at the expense of taking large numbers of casualties. Witness the Soviet experience in Afghanistan, then of course the US, and in the future, the Chinese.

Censorship is kind of like welding the safety valve shut on a boiler because those in charge are upset by the noise of the escaping steam. This is very effective, short term. If they also disable the pressure gauge, they placate the bosses who are sitting right next to that boiler.

Eventually the pressure will get relieved. with no safety valve and no turning down of the heat, the way it happens is quite spectacular. Search for footage of a BLEVE.

Private business equals rules to abide by, if you can’t do it then your content is removed, it’s pretty simple

But it's very unfair when that private entity biasedly removes information that is damning to one party while allowing information that is damning to the other party.

Or removing truthful information of one party while allowing misinformation to remain available for the other party.

They've turned into a politically biased group of evil people.

FWIW

With deep state and Soros funding... it would be quite a while before they run out of money. And in the mean time... those who are anti-deep state, are the ones being censored.

And what do you have to say about Youtube banning truthful videos showing harmful effects of the vaccination?

Don't you think the general public at large would be interested in seeing such videos?

But no... Youtube won't have it... because it doesn't fit the Democrat's narrative of attempting to force everybody to get vaccinated. If people really knew the truth about the vaccines, they might not want to get the vaccination.

 But Youtube won't allow that.

FWIW

That's your opinion, it isn't fact. Beyond that, if you want these platforms regulated then Government has to get involved and you don't like Government intervention, so what's the solution here?

Have government reform Section 230 so that these big tech giants can be held responsible for what they allow and refuse to allow. They are hiding behind their carte blanch current protection to do dastardly and unfair political deeds of the left against the right.

They have thus become a political entity and need to be held accountable for their actions.

How am I even speaking to the same person, you want Government to intercede for the benefit of (allegedly) all americans for fairness and yet you abhor any attempt at any other Government intervention citing freedom. These companies are just exercising their freedom as private business owners, normally you'd be all for that but because you've been so brainwashed you can't even see how hypocritical this ask really is, they should write about you in laffy taffy wrappers...because you're a joke.
